to realize that this is our katrina. >> the obama administration responded to complaints that fema was late on the scene and anountsed that the deputy administrator will be there tomorrow and fema wants everyone who needs assistance to call. when there's complaints, it's because they haven't been able to reach out. 1- 800-621-fema or disasterassistance.gov. >>> president obama was back on the trail. >> in new jersey yesterday and saw the devastation and you really get a sense of how difficult this is going to be for a lot of people. but you know, we've been inspired these past few days. because when disaster strikes, we see america at its best. the consumer in these times all seem to melt away. there are no democrats or republicans during the storm. just fellow americans. >> his response to the storm has earned him big praise. 78% approve of how he's dealt with the hurricane. images and headlines like this have helped, too, featuring chris christie of new jersey on a bipartisan storm damage tour together from wednesday. but not everyone's a fan of the federal agencies that handle disasters
't know what he shot about. he hot his mouth about katrina and we have seen record low levels. andrew cuomo linked climate change to sandy yesterday. >> steve: a county plans to move forward with a gun tax. under the plan will be a $25 tax on the fire arms and a plan to tax bullets. but the board dropped that because it would be more than the costs of ammunition. >> giant tiger shark. maria, a black belt was swimming in maui. and the shark confronted her and she gave it a best punch in the nose. she got more than a hundred stitchos her hand and thigh. >> steve: that's what you are supposed to do. >> gretchen: a woman was told her bible shirt was offensive. they made her cover tup with a jacket. they say it violates election laws and the attorney said he wants an apology or there will be a lawsuit. >> steve: is the on the ballot there? >> that shirt is permissible. keep the shirt on. >> steve: 20 minutes before the top of the hour. navy seals outraged over what happened in benghazi posted this on facebook. but facebook took it down. doesn't that vialate people's use of free speech. the
, some are now drawing comparisons between this superstorm and katrina. so just how do they measure up? cnn meteorologist severe weather expert chad myers is taking a closer look. he's joining us now. how do they measure up, chad? >> well, first of all, the storm surge with katrina was enormous. almost three times more of a wave or of a surge with katrina as bay st. louis was about 28 feet. manhattan island, downtown, the battery, had about 9.5 feet. haven't seen too many numbers higher than that. 9.5 feet moving into the city comparing to moving into the bay, obviously there's a town there and all the way do biloxi, it's the population density in new york city that is going to -- and in new jersey and connecticut, that is going to put this way up in the record books. katrina, $145 billion in damage. andrew, this is cost for adjusted inflation $43.5 billion. and looks like somewhere sandy will fall somewhere between katrina and into andrew. so probably number two on the scale for dollar damage. now, when it comes to deaths, it's disturbing, wolf, to see and hear how quickly the fatalit
it was obama's katrina, which it is. the jobs report is up. we will check in with karl rove and look at predictions from others as the outcome of tuesday is now pretty much at hand. joining me with reaction to all of this, radio talk show host willie billy cunningham. his radio show is heard nationally across the country on sunday nights. sir, welcome back. ju you are a great american. >> sean hannity, how are you? >> sean: after the photo op,. billy cunningham where does president obama fly? to vegas. meanwhile, it it is beginning to freeze in the northeast. people don't have heat, electricity. the gas stations that are open people are waiting six hours or long are to be able to get gas. he comes to town. he hugs chris christie, photo op and then heads off to vegas. your reaction? >> i would say a few things. number one, i think this is obama's katrina in which he is showing a complete lack of compassion. i can recall a speech he gave in denver in front of 70,000 fans in which he said if you elect me the winds will stop blowing and the oceans will not rise. what happened to the anoi
is that there are pockets that are very similar to some of the hardest-hit areas after katrina. >> reporter: the company plans to help rebuild seaside heights, still closed off to residents. back in staten island, patrice says she doesn't know what's next, but she does know what she needs. >> i need some place to stay permanently. that i can afford to pay once fema help ends. >> reporter: and this is a community-based center run by volunteers. also fema has set up 55 centers throughout the hardest-hit areas of staten island. >> michelle frandsen, thank you. >>> meanwhile, the red cross says it's received $117 million in donations to help victims of sandy. and tells us that so far its response has been near flawless. but that's not what we heard in some hard-hit areas of new york city where storm victims claim the country's preeminent disaster relief organization has been missing in action. here's nbc's senior investigative correspondent lisa myers. >> reporter: two weeks after sandy hit, residents of breezy point, new york, still wonder if more help will ever arrive. >> we haven't seen red cross at all.
a montage of people in the east coast. whole story has shifted into what i am calling obama's katrina. watch this. >> we keep convincing people. >> we -- what is going on here [bleep]. >> the old lady has nothing. >> what are we going to get. [bleep]. >> and i mean, seriously, people out here are very frustrated by what's going on. >> it's just chaos. it's pandemonium out here. >> everybody is hotheaded, everybody is upset. >> we can't live like this. it's too hard. we cannot live like this! people who have not even left their apartment because they scared. we can't live like rats. this is disgusting. >> we need to -- please, president obama, please listen to us down here! we are going to die! you don't understand. you've got to get your trucks here on this corner now! >> we need help. fema takes so long. three to five days, we have no place to go. >> my kids are in the shelter with me. >> this story has flipped. gas lines minimum four hours all across new york, new jersey and long island. the president comes in, photo op and leaves. >> the minute he got the photo op he went back to being ca
. >> this is our katrina. and i expect the people of this state to be treated with the same level of compassion and generosity that the citizens of louisiana and mississippi and alabama were treated in the aftermath of hurricane katrina. >> michael graham told me out on staten island as well. more than half a million households are still without power. 40,000 homes on the rockaway peninsulas. deb fayerick is there and how angry are people? >> people are so frustrated and angry. it's been only 12 days since the storm hit. you're not too far from jfk. that light is basically illuminating a corner. that means there's no heat. boilers can't work. there are no washer triers, no way to charge a cell phone. no way to use a computer to access any sort of outside help, so they feel they're just being cut off here and they cannot understand why atlantic power authority, which is a state-owned company, can't get the lights on. we spoke earlier to couple of people at a rally and they were so frustrated. take a listen. >> restore the power to our community now! now! we're done! >> you know, and you just, yo

. but things have changed, haven't they? >> the whole story really is the cold katrina that is going on up there in parts of new york and part was new jersey as you just reported. i think this has gone way beyond a happy chappy political photoop event and has become something terbelieve for a lot of people. it is almost for a moment outside of the realm of politics as they suffer through. >> i was staggered to see a poll yesterday on the david gregory show said 65 percent of the country approved the president's handlingly the storm. have a talked to the people it is impossible for me to see how someone gets high grades because they put on a jeans jacket and walk through the rubble. >> it was early on in the days of the storm, it looked like government was in control and the president was there walking around new jersey. but very quickly, this turned into a story whose headline in time government didn't work so well, didn't it? they didn't get in the water or blankets and they ran out of the gas and as for the electrical situation, it is not a katrina where it is warm outside. people are co
hurricane katrina they spent it on gucci bags and massage parlors and everything you can think of in addition to what was necessary. shopping is the key concern for the literally ms of people affected by the storm. who could be worse for states like new jersey than the congressional vote on how fema should spend its money? king was one of 11 members to vote against providing additional disaster relief to the victims of hurricane katrina back in 2005. >>> on a more positive note, chris christie's wish comes through. it's no secret he's a fin of bruce springsteen. over the years springsteen has not returned the love until last night. he reached out to the victims of hurricane sandy and then some. listen to this. we're a band that can't separate from the jersey shore. we'll send this out to all the people working down there, the police officers, the firemen, and also to the governor who has done such a hard job this past week. well, there you have it. the romance, the bromance isn't as one-sided anymore. >>> also, what part of the presidential election got this, 4-year-old colorad

katrina in some ways. the governor said while more people were killed by katrina, sandy had a bigger economic impact because of the dense population of the new york city area. cuomo has invited house speaker john boehner to come to new york to tour the damage. >>> a peanut processing plant linked to salmonella won't we open today as planned. the fda stopped operations at sunland incorporated after 41 people in 20 states were sickened by tainted peanut butter. yesterday, the fda suspended sunland's registration preventing the company from producing or distributing any food. >>> was the death of former palestinian leader yasser arafat murder? was he poisoned? he died suddenly of a stroke, supposedly, in 2004, but a swiss lab said this summer that it found traces of a radioactive substance on his clothing. >>> the u.s. soldier accused of giving state secrets to wikileaks will speak for the first time since his arrest in 2010. bradley manning will testify today at a pre-trial hearing. he is expected to talk about his treatment, saying he's already been punished by being in solitary confi
to bail out new orleans after hurricane katrina, belmar, new jersey is returning the favor. >> get this water out of our town and back in the atlantic. >> reporter: belmar mayor said sandy swept his town over seven city blocks. what sandy did not flood she basically trashed. >> now we're in a recovery phase, getting the water out. at the same time we have heavy machine engineer that's moving the debris. >> reporter: the streets are being cleared. the sand trap left behind is being erased. >> we're trying to get power to the laundromat. >> reporter: nobody has electricity so the mayor had charging stations installed. >> council is receiving distribution. >> reporter: he's running the distribution center that's providing warmth and food that some people in bell hard have. >> what's it took at home right now? >> my home is cold. my brothers are hungry. >> as you go out into belmar with your assigned duty. >> reporter: everybody here has a job. >> i make grill cheese sandwiches. >> reporter: the mayor is telling restaurants to open and give their food away for free. >> we're here for t
a month after the storm, katrina, on the mississippi coast, speaking with the mayor of a small town down there where for a mile inland everything was rubble. he started to tell me, our problems now are mental. walking around in this, living in this, not being able to making progress, and a lot of people had severe psychological problems. is that something that is on your mind yet? >>guest: our biggest fear right now is people are going to become anxious when it comes to getting order to their lives. the longer it takes for them to get some sort of order, the more that depression will set in because this is their life. >>shepard: certainly the we are thinning about you. what do you need down there, quickly, before we go? >>guest: electricity. that will make all the difference in the word because we have, we cannot by any food, we cannot buy gasoline and we cannot heat our home. we have gas, we have good water, we need electric. we hope, we have 10 percent of the town lit up again and we are hoping they make great progress as they normally do. that is what we need. >>shepard: we are too, m
after hurricane katrina. >> many others have been dispatched from illinois to share what they learned from katrina several years ago. >> reporter: how much water do we need to pump out? >> our estimates at this point in time are 300 to 400 million gallons of water. and it's growing. >> reporter: and even though there's not as much overall as there was in new orleans, he says the job in new york is much more difficult. >> it's not the amount of water that's the problem, it's where it is. >> it's where it is, yeah. >> and where it is is underground in miles and miles of subway and road tunnels. >> some of those tunnels are up to 2 miles long. and the only points into them is at each end. and that requires us to have some pumping capabilities that perhaps reach 1/2 mile to a mile long. >> another problem, the age of the tunnels. new york's subway system is over 100 years old. >> some places we could probably pump out quicker, but we don't want to collapse the tunnel. >> the next challenge, where to pump all that water. >> largely mostly sea water. right now we're working on, it'll get pu
hurricane katrina, and he said new york city is a much more complex problem, because these tunnels are so deep and they are so long, and the path tunnel may be even a little bit luckier if you will, than the subway tunnels, because the subway tunnels, a system that just had its 108th birthday on saturday. one day before hurricane sandy hit, and some of the electrical equipment in these tunnels are so old, they don't know what the effect of saltwater eroding the tunnels. one of the things that struck me, governor cuomo, talking quite strongly yesterday and today about climate change and how climate change has made lower manhattan much more vulnerable to storm surges and made the subway system vulnerable, which is, unfortunately, something that was predicted and predictable. >> well, it's also something -- i was talking to a climate change expert today. it is only going to get worse. we've seen the water rise a foot over the last 100 years, but in the next 100 years, it will rise another two to three feet. for an island like manhattan, that's something we have to contend with. andrea, thank
extraordinary stories of strangers helping strangers. we have seen that. we saw it in katrina, in haiti, and here as well. we just met a young woman, may y beth, a graduate student of the college of staten island, who took it upon herself to see that the hungry in this area were fed. she and some friends cooked up food and set up a distribution center right on the street. no one asked them to do it. they just stepped up to help. mary beth, who is blind, has her guide dog with her, we talked a short time ago. what made you come out here? >> today, one of my classmates, her name is jennifer, she reached out for help and told us that there was no services, they had no power, they were hungry, they were cold. so i cooked up some food, i brought it down, i reached out to my classmates. they brought down food so between myself, ruth, george, debbie, we brought down food and then all of a sudden, we became command central and the national guard, the fdny had dropped off everything. >> you've become like a command central here. >> we became command central. what we did is i went to my classes,

. >> as a governor who dealt with crisis like ice storms. >> tornados, floods. the aftermath of katrina in which our state saw 75,000 evacuees come with nothing, i hoped and prayed we'd never see anything like that again ever and now we are. and frankly, i'm furious about it. there's no excuse for americans to be that away from a bottle of water, a sandwich and warm place to sleep and somebody giving them basic answers why there's no help. i hope if you haven't already made some effort to help these folks, you will maybe through the red cross, red cross.org a place you can go to help, but i hope you'll also raise with people in staten island and let them know it's unacceptable for a government we pay so much for, for people who need so much at a time likes this. it's unexcusable that in this country, people are waiting to get a simple answer, or something warm around their necks or a bottle of water. coming up we celebrate memorial day with a real hero, dakota meyer will be joining us next.

governor of mississippi when hurricane katrina came through. you know what you had to do in terms of working with the federal government. a lot of heat on chris christie, the governor of new jersey for being seen touring his state with president obama and praising his leadership. in your opinion, did governor christie break some unwritten rule? >> look, the governor, whether it's governor of mississippi or new jersey is supposed to do what's in the best interest of his state and his people. and when you have a big disaster like this, a governor knows that not for the next few weeks or months, but for years the federal government's going to be their partner. you know, it's very interesting to me when i didn't criticize george bush after katrina, the press attacked me for not criticizing, saying i was partisan. i did just exactly what chris christie did in this sense. i was taught criticize in private, praise in public, but criticize in private. and besides that, the federal government did a whole lot more right than wrong. for christie and new jersey, their relationship with the fe
katrina the price of gas went up, but that's because that storm struck in a different region of the country. >> well, yes indeed. 25% of the nation's refining capacity is on the gulf coast. katrina was a category 5 storm which meant refineries near the coast took a lot more wind, a lot more water, although sandy was properly named a super storm, it didn't have the sustained wind that we see on the gulf coast with a category 5, and so you didn't have anywhere near the damage to the production facilities. but what makes the new york area, new jersey, new york, connecticut so complicated, matt in, terms of the supply system is you don't have that many refineri refineries. therefore you rely on pipelines and ports, and the ports took quite a bit of damage. you couldn't get barges and ships in there right away. >> right. >> the refineries weren't too badly damaged, but the pipeline was also shut down for a while because it exits on the water. >> let me ask you this then as someone who knows the industry and the delivery system very well. how long do you think this situation is goi

. the damage might wind up costing $50 billion, second only to hurricane katrina. are these super storms related to global warming? >> there's two things to think about. one is, will there be more storms? and the second is, will more of those storms be intense? >> reporter: john mutter teaches environmental science at colombia university. >> what's happening is that if the world is warmer overall, the area that's occupied by the tropics will get larger. so if the tropics expand, they'll bring with them their tropical weather which includes hurricanes. so imagine that now we had ten hurricanes per year and two of them are really monsters. in the future, the expectation is there will still be ten but four of them will be monsters. >> reporter: there may be plenty of legitimate scientific disagreements and plenty of nasty bickering online about how much climate change we're seeing now. but the really frightening part is what's coming. >> i can actually show you temperature over centuries. >> reporter: beth russell runs a n.o.a.a. exhibit called science on a sphere which can present massive
